We visited yesterday for the first time, on the recommendation of a friend. The food was excellent: we started with red pepper hummus (properly garlicky), proceeded to a daily special sandwich which sounded peculiar but was good (chicken, cheese and perogy) and a hamburger plate, and had room for dessert (triple chocolate cake). It's certainly one of the best meals... More

Good food & nice atmosphere been here a few times and every time it is busy. Why does this space ask for 50 Characters? I said what I had to say.

My husband and I enjoyed a nice meal here last month. I had the Chicken Souvlaki (the best chicken I have ever had in a restaurant), roasted potatoes (which were okay, some scorched) and a lovely greek salad. My husband, who is much less adventurous an eater, had the maple burger and fries, which he enjoyed. Lovely decor and staff.... More

I had their dinner special which was a chicken breast with cooked plums (wouldn't think of putting those on chicken but it was fantastic) with seasoned olive oil and roasted and seasoned potatoes and green beans were "off the chart!".

The souvlaki chicken in both the wrap and on the Greek chicken pita was very good. The pita was excellent, the tzatziki very nice. The Greek salad was chunky and contained a nice mixture of olives, very good feta cheese, and wonderfully fresh vegetables. But everything was drowned in salad dressing; it was good dressing with a lovely virgin olive... More

We had high expectations on our second visit, before and after a ferry trip to Newfoundland, and they were exceeded. The maple mandarin salmon was a symphony of flavors, the Greek salad tasted of premium olive oil, the simple bacon wrapped scallops were cooked perfectly--so tender. Make reservations.

Take them to the Olive Tree and watch their eyes light up with the incredible dessert we all shared. Was a big hit and the food was exceptional and was eagerly received by all. Thank you for a wonderful gathering.

From the menu right down to the decor and music -- this quaint bistro is a complete Italian experience. We enjoyed the fresh scallops, deep fried pepperoni, pesto gnocchi and spaghetti with meatballs. All were quiet yummy...sadly, we didn't have room for dessert.
